Celtic boss Neil Lennon says club has approached Man City about loan move for Craig Bellamy

Unusual for Celtic to sign an arsehole.

Apparently City won't let him go to a "competitor" even for a fee. Sounds a bit mad but that's what I heard.

So they're doing what the OF did in the 90s. Buying up all the decent players with very little intention of playing them! Ace.

Well, if it's £94million over 4 years, that works at about £24million per year.

There are 52 weeks in a year, so dividing the £24million by 52 gives you £461,538.46 per week, which is 'roughly' £500,000 per week.

So no. Not a misprint.

I think he's a decent player, but fuckin hell! £500k a week is just mental, even for Arabs!

Barcelona would probably be glad to offload him.

I give him twelve months max and he'll back playing within these shores in a cut price deal.

Great bit of business for the howkers

He looks a decent player at times (eg against Scotland) but too often flatters to decieve or just doesn't turn up.  £500,000k per week or anything in that ball park is utter madness.

Are Man City fans not anxious that when these Arabs get fed up in a few years they're club will cease to exist?

I am a maths teacher, I worked that bit out myself.

What I meant was if it should have been either £50 000/week or £9.4 million. That would seem more reasonable to me!

Absolute joke. He's not even worth a 5th of that in my opinion.

I see the timothy have signed a swedish centre half today and looking to sign a honduran centre half sometime this week. All I want is them to play Mulgrew against us :)

But with their record of "falling down" (see Nakamura: Free Kicks of) that twat Mulgrew will get a lot of opportunities against us. I'd rather he didn't play TBH

The Honduran is meant to be a LB I think. Presumably Mulgrew's replacement.

Bellamy has moved to Cardiff City on loan for the season, not sure how they can afford that tbh. They've survived two winding up orders in recent times have they not?

Lennon on the ball there!

If he hadn't signed Joe Ledley, Cardiff wouldn't have had to sign Bellamy as a replacement, so Celtic could have signed Bellamy instead of Ledley!

Real Madrid have signed Mesut Ozil from Werder Bremen. Another good signing for them.
It's not about escaping. It's about getting out with a bit of dignity.
